Each morning without fail I open up the Archive’s netlabels page with the anticipation of seeing something new from the inspiring Martin Juhls. Surely he has some unreleased material tucked away that will one day find its way back onto the netlabel scene as an mp3 LP or at least an EP release. His work as Marsen Jules, Krill.Minima, and Falter are staple listening for me. Not more than a couple of days will pass without me digging up a burned CDR of his netlabel releases or mp3 file stored on my computer’s hard drive. So, in the meantime, I’m content listening to his previous releases of which I never seem to tire (and his wonderful Marsen Jules CD release Herstlaub on City- Centre-Offices).
The exotic experimental/ambient leanings of Krill.Minima have a depth that is warm and satisfying while the orchestral/acoustic ambient sounds of Marsen Jules have an emotional appeal that leave me feeling satisfied and fulfilled, and the minimal-dub and click-house of the apparently now abandoned project Falter deliver some of the most rewarding listening in this genre.
